In January 2020, Jordi Garcia Rodriguez was about to film the final part of his documentary, ‘NON-CITIZENS’, in Berlin - Germany, and I joined the brilliant crew to document the behind the scenes. These photographs are the result of this journey.
‘NON-CITIZENS’ tells the story of the ones waiting in the purgatory where hundreds of immigrants from Central Africa are fighting for survival ― giving voice to their hopes and fears. This waiting room is not comfortable: dark nights in collapsing, abandoned factories, meals shared in crumbling caverns.
This unusual documentary contrasts the needs of people in Africa with the abstract, philosophical concerns of a European woman in Berlin. Reality and fiction. Physical and psychological scars.
